    All system files do - that's why even winload.exe won't boot windows if it detects unsigned drivers, unless in test mode.

    It's best not to disable that as malicious code could easily be transferred through those.

    Digital signatures are verified within a system file which itself is protected with a digital signature. I don't know of any way to disable this and would not post this information if I knew of such.
